With impeccable taste and an unerring eye for detail, connoisseur Simon Crompton guides the reader through the intricacies of contemporary artisanal menswear, from the Panama hat to the Milanese buttonhole. Each chapter focuses on a different item of clothing and the craftspeople who have mastered it. Aided by extensive illustrations, Crompton offers detailed insight into the way in which these luxury items are designed and constructed, explaining the subtle but crucial difference a hand-stitched seam, perfectly cut sleeve or screen-printed silk can make.

Fashion Design, Referenced is a comprehensive guide through the art and industry of fashion design, richly illustrated with over 1,000 photographs and drawings. Within the framework of four central categories, Fashion Design, Referenced examines the many interwoven elements that form the tapestry of fashion. “Fundamentals” provides an overview of the essential structure of the fashion profession (its organization, specializations, and centers) and looks at shifts in style over time and in ever-faster cycles going forward. “Principles” introduces the steps in creating a collection, from design to production, and explores directions suggested by sustainability and technology. “Dissemination” charts the many avenues by which fashion reaches its audience, whether on the catwalk or in the store, in print or online, in the museum or on the street. “Practice” gathers and appraises the work of the most influential and innovative fashion designers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. From its first question—What is fashion design?—to its last—What does the future hold?—Fashion Design, Referenced chronicles the scope of ideas, inspirations, and expressions that define fashion culture.

On Sunset Boulevard, originally published in 1998, describes the life of acclaimed filmmaker Billy Wilder (1906-2002), director of such classics as Sunset Boulevard, The Lost Weekend, The Seven Year Itch, and Sabrina. This definitive biography takes the reader on a fast-paced journey from Billy Wilder's birth outside of Krakow in 1906 to Vienna, where he grew up, to Berlin, where he moved as a young man while establishing himself as a journalist and screenwriter, and triumphantly to Hollywood, where he became as successful a director as there ever was. Double Indemnity, Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot, and The Apartment"Wilder's cinematic legacy is unparalleled. Not only did he direct these classics and twenty-one other films, he co-wrote all of his own screenplays. Volatile, cynical, hilarious, and driven, Wilder arrived in Hollywood an all-but-penniless refugee who spoke no English. Ten years later he was calling his own shots, and he stayed on top of the game for the next three decades. Wilder battled with Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe, Bing Crosby, and Peter Sellers; kept close friendships with William Holden, Audrey Hepburn, Jack Lemmon, and Walter Matthau; amassed a personal fortune by way of blockbuster films and shrewd investments in art (including Picassos, Klees, and Mir's); and won Oscars--yet Wilder, ever conscious of his thick accent, always felt the sting of being an outsider. On Sunset Boulevard traces the course of a turbulent but fabulous life, both behind the scenes and on the scene, from Viennese cafes and Berlin dance halls in the twenties to the Hollywood soundstages of the forties and the on-location shoots of the fifties and sixties. Crammed with Wilder's own caustic wit, On Sunset Boulevard reels out the story of one of cinema's most brilliant and prolific talents.

A handsome volume covering all aspects of bespoke tailoring. Savile Row is the world’s iconic address for the best in bespoke tailoring, and home to legendary Gieves & Hawkes, suppliers to the British military for more than two centuries and furnishers to elegant gentlemen today. The company began by designing attire for Britain’s most illustrious officers, including Admiral Lord Nelson and The Duke of Wellington, as well as ten generations of British royalty, from King George III in 1809 to Princes William and Harry today. As masculine attire evolved after World War I, Gieves & Hawkes added civilian clothing to its repertoire applying centuries of expertise in creating hand-made garments—proportion, cutting, fitting, and quality fabrics—to the finest bespoke tailoring. This volume traces the rich history of tailoring, drawing from Gieves & Hawkes’ vast, unpublished archives of client ledgers, garments and accessories, and photographs. Including today’s bespoke tailoring and ready-to-wear collections, this is an indispensible book on classic men’s style and fine tailoring.
